Gaffer happy with progress

30 September 2014

Following Saturday's dramatic victory over Gillingham at Bramall Lane, boss Nigel Clough believes several players are starting to find their best form.

Speaking after Jamie Murphy completed a stunning fightback against the Gills, scoring the winner with almost the last kick of the game, Clough says a number of individual performances caught the eye.

The Gaffer remarked: "We are getting there in terms of a complete performance. That is certainly the closest we have been this season, although we obviously need to finish our chances.

"James Wallace and Michael Doyle were excellent in midfield, we looked solid defensively and although we only played with one central striker, the likes of Murphy, Scougall, Davies and Flynn all looked dangerous.

"Jamie is finding his form of late, that goal will do him the world of good, he created the winning goal at Orient and scored the winner against Gillingham.

"Michael Higdon has also shown what he is about with two very pleasing goals in two games, which should give him a massive boost."

Clough added: "We still have plenty to work on but things are certainly progressing, we just need to continue to work hard on our work in the final third, ultimately it is about decision making.

"But we showed great character and the winning goal was worth of winning any game."
